nominees: Zeno van den Broek, Herman van Doorn, Truus van den Heuvel and Anna van Suchtelen
The Kunstliefde Prize emerged from the Hans van Dokkum prize and the B.J. Kerkhof prize. “The award will be given to a visual artist who’s body of work shows – or is about to show – a high-quality development." The prize will be donated yearly at the start of the cultural season. Out of the four nominees one winner will be chosen. In order to come to a balanced verdict, the jury visited all Kunstliefde exhibitions during the last year. The members of the jury are: Hans Laban, Famke Grootswagers, Els Vegter en Cissy van der Wel.
